H is for...

Hotel de Ville

Did you hear about the two (insert dumb nation of your choice here)? They went to France and couldn't find a place to sleep. But lo, what is that? A hotel? Yes, it's the town's hotel! Yippie, we will sleep tonight!

Well, not quite, since Hotel de Ville means Town hall! And unless you want to sleep on the filing cabinets (if you're allowed), no luck in the bed department here!

For more H words from around the world, please check out ABC Wednesday and join in the fun!

  3. I guess I would have been fooled too. I don't really want to sleep in the filing cabinets though, better go find a real Hotel...

  5. Filing cabinets you say? Oh, I think we should drive on and find some other sleeping accommodation. Great post.

  6. That's a cute post for the letter "H"! My daughter loves learning French words...she thinks they are fancier than English words!

  7. Hahaha! And it's 'Rathaus' in German, isn't it? That's also funny.

    Is it 'pensione' in France? Or is that 'guest house'?

  10. Don't think the city would LIKE you to sleep on the file cabinets; it'd ruin the system.
